Chronicles of Alaria
Lanternshire is a newer area of the empire, only acquired a few decades ago. Ruled by Lord and Lady Lanternshire (for which the area takes its name), this shire is home to an oppressed people. Rumor says that the Lord and Lady are taxing the area more than the Emperor requests, and taking the difference for themselves.
In the large forest east of Lanternshire, there lives a band of refugees, too poor to live in the shire any longer. If this keeps up, who will the Lord and Lady have left to tax?
The lord and lady have a teenage daughter who is set to marry Caeden Ciradius when she is of age.
